It seems August 21 might turn out to be a pretty busy day for Sprint. Not only is the carrier releasing the Samsung Conquer 4G that day, it might be also be launching the BlackBerry Bold 9930 and the BlackBerry Torch 9850, according to a leaked document spotted on SprintFeed. The document claimed Sprint priced the Bold 9930 at $249.99 after a rebate and a contract, while the Torch 9850 would sell for less, at $149.99 after a similar rebate and two-year contract.

The Bold 9930 and the Torch 9850 were both announced a week ago and are two of the latest handsets to ship with BlackBerry 7 OS. The Bold 9930 boasts a 1.2GHz processor, a thinner profile, a wider keyboard, and a 2.8-inch touch-screen display, which is a first for a Bold. It'll also have world phone support, meaning it has a dual-mode CDMA/GSM chipset. The Torch 9850 will also have a 1.2GHz processor and world phone specs. It'll be Sprint's first full touch-screen BlackBerry, with a 3.7-inch display and no physical keyboard. You can read our early hands-on with the GSM-only version of these devices here .
